A challenging hike with incredible scenery
Geological wonders as you walk along trails used by locals
Lunch stop at the top - place is dependent on the group and capabilities
One of the best hiking trails in UAE
We begin from the Wadi Ghalilah dam, steadily ascending for a total of 4-5 hours until reaching the top of the Jebel Jais.
The hike begins with a good uphill climb at the beginning, becoming less intense after 3km . The trail takes us towards the UAE's highest public point and gives us a view over Jebel Jais.
Prepare yourself for fantastic views throughout and a very decent workout.
After having a lunch break and taking in the views around Jebel Jais, we descend back down the same path which will take around 3 hours to return to the cars.
Expect a full, long day out and ensure to carry plenty of water - minimum 5 litres. Check-out the full gear list: what to bring.
